Rasmussen (only daily tracking poll after Gallup quit doing it) has had Trump as low as 38% approval and as high as 51% approval during his presidency. Before the shutdown was 49%. During the shutdown dropped to 43%. Now back to 50%.

After the SOTU, the onus is now on the Dims to get a bill passed, I think he has the momentum now.

There’s some rumbling that the Dem bill coming out of the House is going to have some wall (or fence or barrier) funding in it. Apparently the moderate faction in the House sees giving the White House a portion of the ask on the wall in return for a portion of their own ask as this thing called “compromise” after a thing called “negotiation”

Pelosi has said that a bill with any wall funding will not make it out of committee so that will be very interesting.

I heard a rumbling today that Pelosi herself said there would be funding in the bill...I guess we shall see in the next week.

The Maoist wing of her party won’t be happy with her

But there are a couple things Pelosi has done over the last few weeks that have increased my respect for her - she’s a cagey old bird and I like that... she’ll get every last one of these freshmen morons relegated to the House Committee on Paper Clips and Toilet Paper and then she’ll primary their asses right out of there

She is an old hag, but a very smart old hag. I hope AOC really pisses her off and has to clean toilets for the rest of her term.
